The universal Notion, which considers the three moments such as: universality, particularity and individuality. The difference and the determinations which the Notion gives itself in its distinguishing, constitute the side which was previously called positedness. Understanding is the term usually employed to express the faculty of notions; as so used, it is distinguished from the faculty of judgement and the faculty of syllogisms, of the formal reason. When the understanding in the signification is distinguished from the formal faculty of judgement and from the formal reason, it is to be taken as the faculty of the single determinate notion. The pure Notion is the absolutely infinite, unconditioned and free. The universal is therefore free power; it is itself and takes its other within its embrace, but without doing violence to it; on the contrary, the universal is, in its other, in peaceful communion with itself.
